Hi,

Does anyone know if SUSE Linux 10 (preferably the "eval" version) will be included on any future LinuxFormat cover DVD? The reason I ask is that I recently downloaded the 5 CD ISOs (the md5 check indicated they were ok - I could also mount them fine via loopback), only to find that my CD Writer (a Yamaha CRW8424E) is incapable of burning the larger ISO files using "overburning"! Crying or Very sad

See this thread on the SUSE Forums:

http://www.suseforums.net/index.php?showtopic=16727

I prefer the idea of the "eval" version, as I understand this includes things like Adobe Acrobat Reader, MP3 support, etc, that OpenSUSE does not.

Any idea if this will be on a CoverDisc? (If not, I will order it via www.LinuxISO.co.uk - don't want to do that though if LinuxFormat will have it! Wink). Just wondering really.....

Looking forward to updating - I'm currently still running SuSE Pro 8.2! Shocked Laughing

Many thanks.

Well, our goal is always to have the best new distros on the discs, and SUSE is no exception. Keep an eye out for LXF issue 74, which will have the full SUSE 10.0 OSS on the cover DVD! Oh, and lots of other stuff too, but you'll have to wait and see Smile

You can download this ISO (66MB, for x86) and install straight from their FTP servers. Assuming you have broadband, which I am since you downloaded 5 full-size ISOs.

Edit: that ISO is for the openSuse version, not the eval version, sorry. Shouldn't be too hard to install the extras you want though (famous last words...

Hi,

Thanks for the info! Very Happy

Just wondering: SUSE 10.0 OSS - is this OpenSUSE 10 (missing lots of "semi-commercial" features, eg RealPlayer, Java, Acrobat, MP3 support, etc), or the SUSE 10 Eval edition (which includes those missing features) ? (I'm hoping it's the latter!).

Cheers...

My advice: buy a dvd writer (about 30 trade these days0 and download the dvd-eval edition.(available in 32 and 64 bit flavours).
It is excellent!

For several reasons, it'll be the version built on OpenSUSE -- sans a few proprietary things you mentioned, that can be added in a snap afterwards: http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/178/42/

Can all the items mentioned on the above webpage be done over a modem connection (approx 2mb per hour download speed)?
If not, is it possible to include these on the CoverDisc?
Thanks

I downloaded the SUSE 10.0 CD Eval set from Novell with the Acrobat Reader, instead of the DVD Eval because there are extra packages on the CD set. The CD version is only x86 whilst the DVD version has both x86 and x86_64 versions. As pointed out earlier on the LXF News adding the extras is relatively easy even if you use the OpenSUSE version. A good guide (also inthe LXF News Section) is:

http://www.thejemreport.com/mambo/content/view/178/42/.

Just one point I'd like to suggest - I always buy one of the point releases (usually x.2) from my preferred distro to make sure they have funds to keep developing Linux. Download, try , recommend, distribute and enjoy the SUSE Linux experience - it is closer to a total solution than any other distro at the moment (flame proof undies installed Wink )

Actually, there seem to be 3 ISO releases, 32bit CDs, 32bit DVD and 64 bit DVD.
(As well as the live version)

I too like to buyat least one of the Suse number versions.
I used to Subscribe to Mandrake club for much the same reason, until I moved to Suse.

Hi,

Thanks for all the advice. I've actually gone ahead and ordered SUSE 10 (36 from amazon.co.uk), to get the full version and to help support SUSE/Novell a bit, as the last version of SUSE I purchased was 7.3 Pro (my current version, 8.2 Pro, was a gift from a friend).

Thanks for all the advice / info! Very Happy

Is it worth my time upgrading from 9.3 to 10 or Open Suse. I'm not planning to do it, but is there any major difference?

It definitely isn't worth upgrading to OpenSuse if 9.3 works well. Then again it isn't worth upgrading to SuSE 10 either, unless you want to spend some time and money.
SuSE 10 is a pretty good release technically and definitley worth doing if you are creating a new installation, but there's little on it that you can't get by adding the unofficial updates for KDE and Gnome from a local mirror.
